Somehow I was no longer maintaining, but expanding. I found myself eating not one small piece of chocolate, but the whole bar and not one small piece of coffee ring, but many.

What happened? I stopped measuring and recording my food. I eyeballed servings and then just kept eating.

I got too busy for exercise.

Finally the truth hit, I no longer fit the size I was Dec. 1st!

Feb. 8 update: I fit my clothes again, and I am in a smaller size than I was Dec. 1.

My health is good and I am enjoying exercising. Will try to add other kinds of exercises now that my knee is stronger.

May 10: After a short hiatus because of computer problems I got back on after kinks were fixed. Computer acted up again, and my DH surprised me with a new one for Mother's Day!

My Goals:
I will lose 40 lbs. by August 26, our 47th anniversary.

I will set monthly goals so that I can reach that mark.

I will be responsible and choose the right foods and exercise for my well-being.





My Program:
I will eat between 1200-1500 calories a day.

I will exercise at least 30minutes a day.

Feb. 8 update: I will exercise at least 60 minutes daily, even on my rest day, when I will move slower.

May 12th update:

I will exercise at least 100 min. a day.



Personal Information:
Living in Corallville, Ia, I find it hard to walk outside when it is really cold, as it makes my asthma worse. I will use my treadmill.

I am a wife, mother and grandmother. My husband and I care for our grand children during the week.

Although retired, I teach in an afterschool program.

Other Information:
I love to read. It's hard to list a favorite, so it'll be favorites for me! Love mystery and intrigue!
